The Tour comes to Birstall

What a fantastic weekend with the Tour de Yorkshire coming  through Birstall. The town centre was absolutely full of people and the atmosphere was superb. People lined the streets to see the riders fly past and there was a real buzz in the air.

The Tour de Yorkshire was re routed this year to come through Birstall in memory of Jo Cox ,MP. Upper Batley High School were there on Sunday, together with Jo's family, to run a community event where we served up samosas, cakes and buns galore and healthy fruit (of course!).

It was a wonderful opportunity for our whole community to come together and great days like this just demonstrate how we have far more in common than that which divides us.

We will also be hosting a Great Get Together coffee morning here in school on Friday 16th June from 10-12pm. Everyone welcome.
